Customer questions about this product

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a,or R-513a refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Why is the location of a left or right side mounted condensing unit important?
Consider your kitchen’s layout when choosing whether to have the condensing unit on the right or left side and pick the configuration that will keep the compressor as far from heat sources as possible. By ensuring that your unit’s compressor is farther away from equipment like undercounter dishwashers and hot food holding equipment, you can significantly extend the life of the unit.
What does the “H” or “HC” mean in the newer Beverage-Air model numbers?
This is a representation that the unit is using a “Hydrocarbon” refrigerant. This would include both R290 and R600a refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by Beverage-Air in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program.

Beverage-Air BB48HC-1-B-ALT Details

Keep beverages cold and ready to serve in your bar with this Beverage-Air BB48HC-1-B-ALT black solid door back bar refrigerator with a left side compressor! Designed with galvanized steel walls and a durable, heavy-duty stainless steel floor, this unit's cabinet construction prevents damages from routine loading and unloading of bottles, cans, or kegs. This model can hold up to (300) 12 oz. bottles, (288) 12 oz. cans, or (325) long neck bottles. The stainless steel interior floor will also resist corrosion from spills and leaks. Plus, the cabinet's narrow depth allows for more working room behind crowded bars.

For easy access to the contents of the cooler, this model has swinging solid doors that are field reversible. The doors are self-closing so staff don't need to worry about pushing the doors closed during busy service times, and the doors also stay open when needed to make loading the refrigerator easier. Also, each door has a lock to secure your stock after hours. Inside, this model has 2 epoxy coated shelves per section for a total of 4 shelves to help you organize your beverage products and bright, cool LED lighting to help workers find what they need in dark bar areas.

Running on 1/4 hp, this unit boasts a balanced forced-air refrigeration system that chills your items faster. It uses R290 refrigerant to maintain a consistent and cool temperature. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. Full electronic controls help your staff to keep tabs on the unit's performance and make adjustments as necessary. This unit requires a 115V electrical connection for operation.
